Welcome and Project Update
We’re moving into a world of open cloud — where each organization can find the right cloud for its unique needs. A single cloud management platform can not be all things to all people, there will be a cloud space with several offerings focused on different environments and/or industries. The OpenNebula commitment to the open cloud flows directly out of its mission — to become the simplest cloud enabling platform — and its purpose — to bring simplicity to the private and hybrid enterprise cloud. OpenNebula exists to help companies build simple, cost-effective, reliable, open enterprise clouds on existing IT infrastructure. The OpenNebula Conference will be a great opportunity to remind our vision, vision and commitment, to look back at how the project has grown in the last 8 years, and to give a peek at what to expect from the project in the near future.

Rapid Scaling of Research Computing to Over 70,000 Cores
Since 2008, Harvard Research Computing has undertaken a significant scaling challenge increasing their available HPC and storage from 200 cores and 20TB to over 70,000 cores and 35PB of storage.  James will discuss the journey and the highlights of extending the computing to support world class research and education.  During the evolution of the computing platforms at Harvard they also helped to support and build the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center which is a dedicated high performance research computing facility in Holyoke, MA.  This facility continues to support large scale research computing with sustainable energy and advanced networking.  Recently the NESE project (New England Storage Exchange) was funded by the National Science Foundation.  This is a multi-petabyte object store that is supported by the existing MGHPCC facility supporting the region.  The Data Science Initiative at Harvard has also been recently announced and will require even further advanced computation to support their research faculty.  Now as the world takes a grip on "cloud" but more importantly remotely provisioned infrastructure, hybrid models for compute and storage are required along with  flexibility to be able to further accelerate science.  James will discuss their strategy moving forwards and the current and existing infrastructures in place to allow for seamless provisioning of research computing.  Justin Riley Team Lead at Harvard, will follow this talk with a deep technical discussion of the specific implementation of the systems that Harvard are designing in concert with the development teams and leadership at OpenNebula to support research computing to make their platforms more resilient and able to continue to scale.

Paying Down Technical Debt with "ONE" Dollar Bills
In addition to providing bare-metal access to large amounts of compute FAS Research Computing (FASRC) at Harvard also builds and fully maintains custom virtual machines tailored to faculty and researchers needs including lab websites, portals, databases, project development environments, and more both locally and on public clouds. Recently FASRC converted its internal VM infrastructure from a completely home-made KVM cluster to a more robust and reliable system powered by OpenNebula and Ceph configured with public cloud integration. Over the years as the number of VMs grew our home-made solution started to show signs of wear and tear with respect to scheduling, provisioning, management, inventory, and performance. Our new deployment improves on all of these areas and provides APIs and features that both help us serve clients more efficiently and improve our internal processes for testing new system configurations and dynamically spinning up resources for continous integration and deployment. Our new VM infrastructure deployment is fully automated via puppet and has been used to provision a multi-datacenter, fault-tolerant, VM infrastructure with a multi-tiered back-up system and robust VM and virtual disk monitoring. We will describe our internal system architecture and deployment, challenges we faced, and innovations we made along the way while deploying OpenNebula and Ceph. We will also discuss a new client-facing OpenNebula cloud deployment we’re currently beta testing with select users where users have full control over the creation and configuration of their VMs on FASRC compute resources via the OpenNebula dashboard and APIs.

Fast Prototyping of a C.O. into a purpose built Data Center for Multi-access Edge Computing

Reducing services latency is pushing centralized computing power back to the edge of the network, and in this paradigm telecommunication companies are well position to fill the gap. Telefónica is utilizing open-source OpenNebula and ON.Lab's ONOS and CORD to prototype a new generation of Central Offices that are fully IPv6 compliant and allows for the deployment of programmable services rather than the traditional black box solutions provided by proprietary solutions.

Hybrid Clouds: Dancing with Virtual Machines
Today, the model of hybrid cloud comes under the eyes of a lot of organizations. The idea of combining resources of public cloud providers with private depending on the terms of execution, the need of more resources, an extra protection of the data, more or less security in services with sensitive information, etc. are some of the capabilities that this model has to answer. The case of CSUC, acting as cloud provider and at the same time as user of external IaaS and PaaS services, is analyzed sharing its first experiences in the way to archive a real multicloud architecture to provide services for catalan universities and research institutions.

Vtastic: Akamai Innovations for Distributed System Testing

Akamai Technologies’ CDN platform is a complex, highly-integrated distributed system consisting of over 200,000 servers in over 120 countries..  Processing over 3 Trillion web requests per day, the Akamai platform regularly serves over 30Tbps of traffic to end users around the world.  Setup and maintenance of Akamai integration test environments involves a significant investment of hardware, time and subject matter expertise.  As a result, these environments are a scarce resource.  Using Opennebula, Akamai has developed a system for saving and cloning multi-node integration test environments on-demand.  The system is succeeding and has the potential to revolutionize Akamai’s approach to software development and testing.   After exploring Akamai’s platform architecture and testing challenges, we will describe the key innovations that enabled the Vtastic solution, challenges we faced in implementing a reliable system, and future capabilities the system can offer.
